Watch The Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 10 Trailer 

Larry David is back – as Larry David – stumbling through one faux-pas after another in an all-new season of the award-winning, hit comedy series.

As candid, unsparing and outrageous as ever, Curb Your Enthusiasm revolves around a fictionalized, gleefully misanthropic version of David as a ubiquitous camera chronicles the private, often banal world of this (relatively) public man. The series continues to prove how seemingly trivial details of one’s day-to-day life – a cold cup of coffee, a stained shirt, a missing toothbrush – can precipitate a chain of misfortune to hilarious effect. To keep the narrative spontaneous, the series is shot without a script and cast members are given scene outlines and often improvise lines as they go.

Returning series regulars include Emmy nominee Larry David (“Seinfeld”), Susie Essman (“Broad City”), Jeff Garlin (“The Goldbergs”), Emmy nominee Cheryl Hines (“Suburgatory”), Richard Lewis (“Anything But Love”) and JB Smoove (“The Millers”).

Curb Your Enthusiasm returns for its tenth season Sunday, January 19 at 10:30PM.

Celebrating Marvel’s Stan Lee Primetime Special Airing On ABC December 20

Stars of the Marvel Universe assemble to celebrate the life and luminous legacy of Stan Lee in an ABC News production, Celebrating Marvel’s Stan Lee, airing Friday, December 20 (8:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Filmed in part in front of a live audience at The New Amsterdam Theater in New York City, Celebrating Marvel’s Stan Lee takes viewers on an action-packed journey throughout the life of Lee and across the Marvel Universe, sharing never-before-seen interviews and archive footage with Lee himself from deep within the Marvel and ABC News archives.

Lee was one of the most prolific and legendary comic creators of all time. In his more than seven decades in the industry, Lee dreamed up an endless number of new characters and worlds, and brought readers an all-star roster of heroes and villains. As the co-creator of many of Marvel’s iconic comic book characters, including Spider-Man, Ant-Man, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, the X-Men and Black Panther, Lee is credited with making an unprecedented impact on the world of pop culture. He was a visionary and true pioneer whose work lives on in everything from blockbuster films, television series and comic books to video games and consumer products.

During the special, stars Tom Hiddleston, Paul Bettany, Cobie Smulders, Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Saquon Barkley, Mark Hamill, Jimmy Kimmel, Method Man, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Lauren Ridloff, Kevin Smith, Deborah Ann Woll, Joe Quesada, Seth Green, Bob Iger, CB Cebulski, Todd McFarlane, Kevin Feige, Gerry Conway and more share their memories of Lee.

Known for his vivid and engaging prose, Lee gave his heroes real-world problems and realistic human failings. Besides saving the world, they had to face everyday concerns such as dating or paying the rent, and Lee never shied away from social commentary on relevant issues such as race or substance abuse. He also broke ground in giving credit to comic creators, and filled every issue of his titles with chatty responses to fan letters. After years as Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief, Lee became Marvel’s editorial director and publisher in 1972, and eventually was named chairman emeritus.

In addition to his publishing successes, Lee also appeared in some of the most popular films of all time. His well-known cameos in Marvel films began with 1989’s telefilm The Trial of the Incredible Hulk, and since the release of X-Men in 2000 he has appeared in nearly every Marvel production, including 22 Marvel Studios films. Lee also appeared in many television series, including Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel’s Agent Carter and Marvel’s Daredevil, Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man and even as a LEGO version of himself in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and LEGO Marvel’s Avengers. Outside the Super Hero realm, he even pops up as a wedding guest in Disney’s The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement and portrayed a version of himself in the indie classic Mallrats.

“As a young man, Stan ‘The Man’ Lee always dreamed of writing, going on to create some of the greatest heroes of our modern times,” said Joe Quesada, Executive Vice President, Creative Director of Marvel Entertainment. “Stan showed each of us how to be a hero in our everyday lives, and the stories he wrote will go on to influence generations of fans for decades to come. We can’t wait for all you True Believers out there to see this special to honor and celebrate Stan’s incredible life and all the lives he has touched.”

Watch The Boys Season 2 Teaser Trailer

Amazon Prime has released the first teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated second season of their hit superhero series The Boys, giving us a preview of the more gruesome action-packed scenes that we should expect for the new season. The series is scheduled to return sometime next year on Amazon Prime Video.

The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.” The show is expected to retain most of the comics (available for purchase here) boundary-pushing violence and sexuality while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame.

The series stars Karl Urban (Star Trek, Judge Dredd) as Billy Butcher, the ringleader of the vigilantes who risk it all to go against a group of all-powerful characters, with Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, Jennifer Esposito as CIA agent Susan L. Rayner, and Karen Fukuhara as the Female. Elisabeth Shue co-stars in the series alongside Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and Nathan Mitchell.
